Single Answer Multiple Choice

Which statement best describes the differences between Internet Connection Firewall (ICF) and Windows Firewall?

A. Both ICF and Windows Firewall are enabled by default.
B. Both ICF and Windows Firewall are disabled by default.
C. ICF is disabled by default; Windows Firewall is enabled by default.
D. ICF is enabled by default; Windows Firewall is disabled by default.

Answer:
C. ICF is disabled by default; Windows Firewall is enabled by default.

Tutorial:
ICF is disabled by default; Windows Firewall is enabled by default.
Windows Firewall is installed with SP2 and is a replacement for ICF. ICF is available on Windows XP SP1 and Windows XP with no service packs. Windows Firewall is more secure than ICF because it is more conservative in its approach to security. When you install SP2 on a computer running Windows XP, Windows Firewall is enabled by default. This differs from ICF, which is disabled by default.
